He's not a scientist
Let's get a bit closer to the truth, here.
He was not appointed as a scientist by CSUN.
CSUN spokesperson Carmen Ramos Chandler told CBSLA Armitage was a temporary hire between 2010-2013 and worked as an electron microscopy technician. She could not comment on the lawsuit as university officials had not yet received the complaint.
He was not employed to do research. He was employed as a technician. He thus was abusing University facilities. Instant dismissal in the country I live in.
Lets have a look at his qualifications.
Mark H. Armitage earned a BS in Education from Liberty University and an MS in Biology (parasitology), under Richard Lumsden (Ph.D. Rice and Dean of Tulane University’s graduate program) at the Institute for Creation Research in San Diego, CA. He later graduated Ed.S. in Science Education from Liberty University and is a doctoral candidate there.
Liberty and ICR? And they call him a scientist?
With those "qualifications" it was a bad idea to even employ him as a technician. Hopefully this will teach American Universities never to employ "graduates" from Liberty and the ICR; not even temporarily as technicians. Those guys are not there to do science; they're there to preach.

I think the people who say he should not be hired because he attended Liberty U are way wrong.
I disagree.
Where I work, "graduates" from Liberty University come around to apply for jobs quite often. They normally claim to be coal Geologists. Yet they are are Christian Missionaries.
In the interview phase none of those has ever even tried to answer very, very basic questions. What is a Proximate analysis? What is an Ultimate analysis? They don't know.
Imagine employing those and expect coal mining companies to pay for their 'services' on geology.
Liberty "graduates" tend to know the same about coal as a two year old child.
Those people haven't had even one day's education in coal geology; yet they pretend to know it all. Don't ever hire them.

Goodness, gracious me, Mike, you can write a lot.
You do know about mining companies and what they do, don't you?

Goodness, gracious me, Mike, you managed to write a lot again.
You're still missing the mining companies in my country.

Why can't we know?
Well, I've learned that 'graduates' from Liberty are crazy as bat "sh*t". Don't ever appoint any of them. Ever. They're crazy.
Easy.
